Overview

Architecture is a notoriously difficult business to break into. If you've never designed a building to completion before, no one will hire you to do it: a catch-22 if there ever was one! But one Danish architect beat the odds, entering the industry with a bang after winning a contest to design a housing complex in Orestad.

Today, Bjarke Ingels is head of design firm BIG and has been named one of Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People. Operating worldwide, Bjarke Ingels Group has been at the forefront of sustainable architecture, and was instrumental in rebuilding New York City after Hurricane Sandy.

In this episode of Netflix docuseries Abstract: the Art of Design, Ingels recalls how he disrupted industry traditions and employed unorthodox methodologies to get his foot in the door. Along the way, we are provided with a vision of how one charismatic and unique architect is leading the future of sustainable architecture.

"When architecture is at its best, you're coming up with something that is pure fiction and then after all the hard work and budgeting and construction, it now becomes concrete reality."
